Lights glimmer from quaint dwellings...
It’s easy to capture the romance that has thrived in St. Augustine for 400 years: take a dreamy walk together on the bayfront, indulge yourselves with duo spa treatments or raise a glass and toast to love in the café in the bottom of the old swimming pool at the historic Lightner Museum. A perfect finale for the day is a ride in a horse-drawn carriage along charming, tree-lined streets.
Evening walks in the oldest part of the city are remarkably romantic, and free. Begin with a stroll around the fort walls, then follow the old walkway along the seawall and cast your eyes out toward the bay. Your path follows in the footprints of many couples before you who have found love and romance in St. Augustine.

A horse and carriage ride puts you in touch with the rhythm of the city at night. As your carriage rolls forward, the repeating clop-clop sounds of the horse’s hooves lull you on a slow journey into the past. Lights glimmer from quaint dwellings, music drifts on the breeze and stately church spires rise against the night sky.
Ghost tours are a mix of facts, stories and legends, but they are captivating glimpses into the city’s spirit. On foot or by trolley, it’s an intriguing experience to share in the mysterious glimmer of moonlight.
Whether you stay in a seaside resort or a chic inn, be prepared to take home memories that will repeat and repeat in your dreams.
